Excerpt from The Origin, Growth and Tendencies of Education in the United States: An Outline SketchThere have been two forces in this country that have proved themselves capable of organizing and maintaining schools - one, the Christian church in its various branches; the other, political State organizations.The Puritan branch of the Protestant church was the founder of our school systems. This was a work of such importance that the attention of the nation will be directed to it as long as it maintains its existence as such, and the public interest will increase and intensify in the same ratio that time advances.It will be the purpose of this paper to estimate, with sufficient fullness to convey a distinct idea, the two great principles on which our school systems rest, yet with the greatest possible brevity consistent with this idea; and as they had their origin in firmly fixed religious convictions, our attention will first be directed to that department of the subject.In the last half of the 16th century a very small portion, both of the clergy and laity of the Church of England, became dissatisfied with its practice and the form of its organization. Of these there were two general classes - one that proposed to remain in the church and purify it; the other, having no hope of accomplishing so great a work, separated from it. The latter are those whose principles and practice we shall briefly trace.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
